Object Queries

Remarks

The default timeout for object queries and the SaveChanges operation is defined by the underlying connection provider. However, you can override this default timeout value by using the CommandTimeout property on the ObjectContext, as shown in the following example.

// Specify a timeout for queries in this context, in seconds.
context.CommandTimeout = 120;
' Specify a timeout for queries in this context, in seconds. 
context.CommandTimeout = 120

Do this when you have a complex query or when other performance issues cause queries or calls to SaveChanges to time out frequently.
